Thank you for visiting the website for St. Mary's C.E. Middle School. We are a 9-13 middle school situated on the outskirts of Puddletown, a small village in the beautiful Dorset countryside. We are a church school with an ethos built on the core Christian values of respect, forgiveness, justice, uniqueness, equality, acceptance and kindness.
We look to inspire our school community and give them the tools to thrive in the modern world, summed up by our school aim of 'Inspire today to shape tomorrow'. We are proud to have been assessed as an outstanding church school in our last two Church of England inspections. We expect the highest standards in both academic work and behaviour and we place our children at the centre of everything we do.
The pupils, staff and governors are very proud of our school and we hope that this website will allow you to see why. We look forward to having the opportunity to meet you in person.
Following a communication from Dorset Council recieved at lunchtime today, the school will be closed to all staff and pupils tomorrow. This action has been taken due to the RED weather warning of potential harm caused by Storm Eunice. The school will reopen as normal after half term on Tuesday 1st March 2022. Due to the short notice of the closure, limited online learning tasks will be put on Show My Homework.
